Large bromeliads

This is how the dyckia flowers looked against the monsoon sky yesterday at school. But soon the winds blew away the clouds and the sun blazed forth.


The large bromeliads are quite big, about 6 feet across. The flowers tower over the young trees around them. Dyckias like the blue-grey one have barbs which are very painful if you get poked by them. I have planted the blue-grey one near the gate of my garden, but I think the time has come to remove it.

  1. Lotusleaf, are you sure those are dyckias and not agaves? I had always thought dyckias were compact plants suitable for container-growing. Your first picture is magnificent.

  2. Shailaja, the blue grey one looks like agave tequilana, but it is a Dyckia maracasensis. About the yellow one, I might be mistaken, although there are now dyckias without barbs. Many dyckias are quite large.
    The picture came out so well because of the peculiar lighting, I think.
